Atrial Fibrillation And Nursing Considerations

This paper will educate the prudent nurses who read it with detailed information about the specific cardiac pathology of atrial fibrillation. Written with a basic understanding of human heart function/structure as a prerequisite, this paper will first discuss

NM1704: Applying a model of nursing
roper, logan and tierney model
This essay explores the preoperative care provided to one patient in a London hospital during one shift. This care was influenced by the holistic perspective to health. Arsing from the Greek for ‘whole’ this acknowledges physiological, psychological and social factors impacting the patient’s condition. (McFerran & Martin, 2008) It seeks to offer treatment inclusive of these factors rather than treating physical symptoms

argued that everyone's needs are complex and as such, complex needs have been difficult to define (Rosengard et al., 2007). This essay intends to use literature to outline a systematic and holistic approach to care of a patient's complex needs. The nursing process and its framework of assessment, planning, implementation and evaluation will be utilised to provide a patient centred approach (Castledine, 2011).
Rankin and Regan (2004) described complex needs as being a framework rather than a label
Physical activity recommendations for adolescents with repaired tetralogy of Fallot: review of the literature and guidelines for practitioners
Adolescents living with congenital heart defects (CHDs) are a growing population in the United States. While in the 1960s and 1970s, the risk of dying after cardiac surgery was high at 30%, over the past few decades, this risk has decreased to approximately 5%, with the majority of children born with CHD living into adulthood (American Heart Association [AHA]
